    1. Thanks for writing, Janet. We will continue to post information about the Showhouse here as we move forward. We have some wonderful designers who will be working hard in the coming months to be ready for an exciting Preview Party on April 28th! Watch for our ads in the Times Union also.

      We are always looking for volunteers to help with preparations before and activities during our Showhouse. Let me know if you are willing to help!

      As questions come up, feel free to contact me here.

  1. I just got an email from a friend telling me that there will be a Show House this year. Will there be a shop at this year’s Show house? I have participated in previous Show house shops for several years with my one of a kind bags. No one has contacted me about participating in this year’s shop.

    1. Hello Ellen,

      It’s wonderful to hear from you. Yes, there WILL be a Boutique this year that Lynne Nisoff is putting together. I am the proud owner of two of your one-of-a-kind bags! Since I have no idea why you were not contacted, I suggest that you write directly to Lynne at knisoff1@nycap.rr.com.
      Let me know if you have any trouble reaching her but I suspect that she will be glad to hear from you.

  2. I am not finding direction for the showhouse on the website. Where do we park and is there a shuttle or do we park close to the house??

    1. Dear Janet,

      We did just assume GPS usage. I do apologize.

      The address is on the site: 6030 Nott Road in Guilderland. At the intersection of Route 20 (Western Ave.) and Route 155, go south on Route 155. Just past the school on your left, Nott Road is ahead on the right. Turn right and the Showhouse is just ahead on the right (very long driveway). There is on site parking, no shuttle.

      If this is not clear, please feel free to call me at (518) 366-7697.

      Marilyn Hunter, Vanguard Co-President

      1. I have just noticed that directions and parking info is listed now. I had no problem figuring out where the house is located but thought that parking info was essential as some years there has been a shuttle.

        Thanks!!
        Janet
